Through the years I found that sourcing items for specific events, photo shoots, and interior design projects was a valuable skill in a city that produces images, events, and interiors that influence how style is seen throughout the world. I started my career in New York City in the late 1980s dressing display windows at Henri Bendel and Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in the glory days of true innovative story-telling windows in the days before the internet and Instagram. It was there that I learned the fine art of styling designer clothing & creating an aspirational & romantic mood with merchandise and propping that helps build a relationship with the clothes we wear, and the emotion that people have with properly presented merchandise. I had access to the finest luxury designer clothing like Claude Montana, Pauline Trigere, Coco, Mr Beene and others, and learned about expert seam construction, the feel and distinction of well crafted fabrics, the details that matter, and the high tech fabrics that were constantly being introduced that were/are constantly innovating the marketplace.
It was also a time (the 80s) when the shift in the social food chain (read: society) began to change, a time when the Ladies Who Lunch began to be replaced by a new moneyed group of vulgarians who changed the way retail was conducted. Shopping was a sport not an event; it was about consumption but not mapping out the way clothes could be worn and the appropriacy of different looks, for day, for evening, for events. I witnessed the last gasp of the days when shoppingeven at the mid-levelwas an event, a treat, and madame was served champagne in dressing rooms and the clothes were explained and the ways to wear them were explored.
My mother also wore lots of Bonnie Cashin in the 1960s and 1970s so I was aware of the modern minimalists, and sought them out for her when I found them. Since Im shopping constantly, and love fancy estate sales and sample sales, I scour them regularly and with great skill; the result is an online shop that I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, home accessories, & mid century odds and ends from high end homes in the New York City area. I also sell to designers looking for inspiration clothing to base new designs from, and have many garments not listed that I show privately. I love finding stuff, and love helping source stuff, and just KNOW that I have tons more stuff than is listed here, so if you are in film or television production just ask for specifics and I will probably have something for you, or be able to understand what you are looking for without wasting your time.
